I can’t say I don’t understand it. I’ve got older relatives that aren’t doing well. This could very well be their last holidays, or their last holidays without Alzheimer’s, which runs in my family. Obviously, we’re opting to not infect them with Covid and we’re fortunate that they’re cooperating with us, but it’s still depressing that most likely the last years of their lives we spent waving from a distance. Every holiday or event that rolls around forces you to re-make the decision to stay apart and not touch, and it feels like it hurts a little more each time.
I’m a server in a 55+ town that is right next to a college town in Arizona can get that. I worked the other day in a place I now refer to as “the town that Covid forgot”. It was the strangest ER shift I had in a while. No Covid in the community. Now it was in the nursing home and the only reason I was there was that the regular ER doctor has it. But it was the first time I wasn’t surrounded by it. If you are in a relatively safe place, be thankful. Because when it starts ripping through your town, it’s awful., 40 hours a week I’m in a dining room with strangers not wearing masks, all snowbirds who have traveled here, and we have almost no cases in our town? Town of 40,000 too and I don’t know a single person.
